Dr. Andrew Turrisi answered:

Prostate cancer treatment?

First question

Prostate_cancer
is whether treatment is necessary, depends on Gleason score and PSA. Treatment may not add value to you. Watchful waiting follows your PSA #, rate of rise. If your Gl >/= 7, PSA > 10ng/mL, best option is radiotherapy, +/- anti-hormone. Get a few opinions. Do not act in haste.

Dr. Liawaty Ho answered:

What is done in kidney cancer treatment?

Depend on the stage

Cancer
depend on the stage and whether surgery can be done. Surgery to remove the kidney cancer either by removing the kidney entirely or partially would be the best cure for this cancer-in early stage when surgery can be safely done. In advanced stage, when cancer has spread to other organ, it would be incurable. "smart pill" like votrient/sutent etc would be the option- trying to control the disease.

Cancer treatment centers of america ctca?

Real Rx, lots of ads

Cancer
These folks market themselves aggressively to people with newly-diagnosed cancer. Today, most cancer treatments that are not part of research studies are pretty much cookbook, and I'd prefer to be treated at my personal physician's hospital. It's impossible to compare statistics between hospitals as healthier people may choose to travel further; CTCA also offers "spiritual" and "holistic" stuff.

What are stage 4 cancer treatment options?

Depends

Cancer
Depends on type, but most often some sort of chemotherapy is used. Today there are many new "targeted therapies" that turn off specific things in the cancer cells that make them grow that might be used instead of chemo. Some stage IV cancers are treated with immunotherapy. Surgery or radiation may be used to focus on problem spots that are resistant to the other treatments.

How sick will my cancer treatment make me?

Varies

Cancer
Cancer treatments are often feared as patients expect to feel quite ill. Your doctor should be able to give you a firmer idea of just what to expect but as treatments have improved over the years the toxicities have also improved. Many patients tolerate chemotherapy and radiation therapy very well, and an increasing number are continuing to work through treatment.

What is stage 1 rectal cancer treatment risk?

Can need colostomy.

Cancer
AThis is where the cancer does not go past the muscle layer. Surgery can treat this but there are risks. Surgery can be through the abdomen with or without surgery on the anus. The first way might need a temporary or permanent colostomy, an opening for expulsion of waste. The other way requires a permanent colostomy. Surgery may be done that just involves the anus, but that risks recurrence.
